Drawing from her own history as a bullied child, Jodee Blanco tells how she was able to convert her painful childhood into a survivor's guide for peer-abused children. Blanco provides advice, answers, and solutions to the widespread problem of bullying among young people in schools across the nation. Far more than a memoir, the book offers specific solutions to specific problems.
While other kids were daydreaming about dances, first kisses, and college, Jodee Blanco was just trying to figure out how to get from homeroom to study hall without being taunted or spit upon as she walked through the halls. This powerful, unforgettable memoir chronicles how one child was shunned—and sometimes physically abused—by her classmates from elementary school through high school.
